'His book is timely and a triumph. Roberts manages to convey all the reader needs to know about two men to whom battalions of biographies have been devoted' EVENING STANDARD

Adolf Hitler and Winston Churchill were two totally opposite leaders - both in what they stood for and in the way in which they seemed to lead. Award-winning historian Andrew Roberts examines their different styles of leadership and draws parallels with rulers from other eras. He also looks at the way Hitler and Churchill estimated each other as leaders, and how it affected the outcome of the war.

In a world that is as dependent on leadership as any earlier age, HITLER AND CHURCHILL asks searching questions about our need to be led. In doing so, Andrew Roberts forces us to re-examine the way that we look at those who take decisions for us.

It meditates on leadership itself, on history, history-makers and history-writers, on ironies past and presentFascinating and thought-provoking ... Thoroughly well worth readingThe best recommendation of this very entertaining and convincing book it that it is full, not just of funny and engaging stories very well told, but of some very startling illustrationsThe study of history remains a constant joy, as well as a challenge and a path to enlightenment for Andrew Roberts.
